This was a sketchy little thing before the addition of two bolts a while back. Just across the small alcove from Double Trouble sits this face/finger crack.
Climb straight up past two bolts to a move right around a small bulge.
Up the crack to a ledge with an anchor.
Watch out for loose block below the ledge.
small alcove as Double Trouble

I led this route back around 1993 and then it had one pin and no bolts. I remember it having groundfall potential when I was a ways up and there was only one pin and marginal gear below me. I understand it originally had two pins and whoever added the two bolts apparently only replaced these original pins sites with bolts. A good route, and I haven't been on it again. I need to get back on it!

takes great pro, just don't take too long to place it.

Apart from the bolts, I think this has a similar feel to a lot of Minnesota trad routes - you only need to place a few pieces and do a few moves to get to the top, so it shows its difficulty without delay.
